Description

Another easy access line as turn left 25 meters below black slope "Corne Noire" . The line is 40% steep for a really short section before getting more gentle close the trees. The line is well protected from the sun as north face exposure, with often a good snow cover, base can be an issue in this part of the mountain due to the low altitude. Avalanche risk is pretty low but can happen in case of heavy snow fall but trees help to make stable the line. River is present at the bottom where a crossing is needed before the line finishes on the blue piste "Corne Bleue" which leads back to L'essert area.
